I just wanted to put this out there...I have tried sooo many medications, including zoloft, clomipramine, seroquel, abilify, celexa, lexapro, pristiq, lithium, and the list goes on.
Recently I have been struggling with ZERO motivation to do anything, let alone care for my DD. I couldn't get my butt of the couch to play with her or do any housework, etc. I went to my usual psych appointment and she suggested Concerta (which is a time-released Ritalin) and I wanted to tell you all about the HUGE improvement I have seen with this drug. It is not for everyone, and can be addictive, but right away I felt a huge rush of energy and internal motivation. I played and sang with my DD. I smiled and laughed, it was amazing.
Just wanted to share in case anyone out there is at their last straw like I was. Concerta is a very new treatment for depression so I wanted to raise some awareness.
Wishing all of you all the best. Feel free to contact me at [email protected]
